2010 Music for Squares: Oldies Muppets & Metal Charlemagne

2010 is off to a wonderfully bizarro start for Squares of all sorts.

On one hand, you've got the latest Muppets viral vid hitting the Internetz this week.

I particularly love this video because it's improvised. IMPROVISED! As if I couldn't love those puppeteers any more. (Also...Jimmy Fallon's show has totally grown on me, and I'm scared to say I might like that Jimmy Fallon a LOT. Don't judge me!!)

On the other hand, you've got the Awesomest Story of 2010 Thus Far -- Christopher Lee is making a metal concept album about King Charlemagne.

I heart this so hard, since it appeals to both my over-the-top, metal-loving sensibilities and my love for over-the-top Les Miserables -ish songs.

And I also heart Christopher Lee, because he just gave me a reason to post this masterpiece:

Come ON! You know that song is GOOD.

Bravo, 2010. Keep the weirdo music comin'.
